HR15 Procedure for the use of University Distribution Lists in Releasing Written Information within the University
Policy Steward:Vice President for Human Resources>
POLICY'S INITIAL DATE: June 7, 1961
THIS VERSION EFFECTIVE: July 1, 1997
To establish distribution lists to be used primarily by members of the President's Staff (or other authorized University personnel) to distribute written communication throughout the University, and to provide a means of identifying to whom each communication was sent.
The release is prepared in final form and shall indicate, in the lower left hand corner of the release, the number or numbers assigned to the distribution lists to be used. For example, if the communications are to be sent to the President's administrative staff, The Council of Academic Deans, and Academic Associate Deans and Assistant Deans, the following information should be typed in the lower left hand corner of the communication:
"Distribution Lists - 2, 3 and 6"
The release should be sent, along with an IDCC form, to Printing Services in the Department of Business Services for reproduction. The quantity for distribution will automatically be determined by the distribution lists selected. If additional copies are needed for a reserve supply, this need must be indicated on the IDCC form, for example: "Prepare the attached copy using distribution lists # 2, 3, and 6. Prepare and send 25 extra copies to this office."
A separate IDCC form should be sent to Addressing Services in the Department of Business Services if distribution service is desired.
The Office of Human Resources should be notified of any additions, deletions or changes. Distribution lists will be revised to incorporate these additions, deletions, or changes. The Office of Human Resources will provide the Department of Business Services with information to maintain current and up-to-date copies of all University distribution lists.
